ask toolbar updater

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming you like your Ask toolbar or you'd just uninstall the whole thing... but you don't want it checking for updates at regular intervals? All you really need to do is stop the scheduled task.

Assuming you're running Windows 7? Go to the Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler.

In the Task Scheduler Library on the left, you should be able to find Ask toolbar (apps are grouped by publisher and I don't know if that will show up as Ask or something else). Once you find it, click on it to have it show in center window. DON'T DELETE IT! It will probably just recreate itself. Instead, you can disable it.

With Ask Toolbar Updater in middle window, click on it once to select it. Then click on Properties in the right column. In the pop-up dialog box, select the TRIGGERS tab. Click once on the trigger (weekly, monthly, daily, etc.) to select it. Then click the EDIT button at the bottom of the window.

You're almost done... Another pop-up titled Edit Trigger appears.... CLEAR THE CHECKBOX indicating ENABLED (at the bottom of the dialog box). Click OK to accept the changes and close the Edit Trigger dialog box. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box. Close the Task Scheduler.

No more annoying Ask Toolbar Updater. :)

      When composing emails in Outlook 2007 Vista, I've always had a mini toolbar present at all times -until now
      Suddenly it has disappeared and only fleetingly reappears when I click on Message, Insert, Options,Format Text pull downs menus
      I realise that I'm thick, but how do I get the mini toolbar to stay there while I'm composing my new email?
      Many thanks for any fix you can suggest, it's driving me mad

      I use Chrome (and thats causing this, i guess) and I have google Desktop installed. And ever since I got in to Google+ there is a bar on top of my screen, below the adressbar, popping up where ever I go. News site? Theres the bar. Going to some site thats unrelated to Google? Hello bar. Going to watch some pr0n? Hello bar.... And its getting annoying. How can I disable that bar? Do you gu?ys have it too? The long black thing saying "+Robert The interwebs Pictures Vids Maps News Gmail More"??
